Still Have Questions?

It’s not uncommon to have questions or want to know more.

Here are a few of the questions your family, friends and neighbors may have asked us.

Any assets owned and titled in the name of the decedent at death will probably need to be probated. So be careful and plan ahead because that includes all assets passing via your Will too.

Ohio intestacy laws dictate where your assets go. Not you, not your spouse and not your heirs. Don’t leave it up to Ohio, make sure you have a plan.

A revocable trust can be revoked as long as those who granted the trust are of sound mind. Revocable trusts allow your assets to avoid the probate process, which is often a big financial burden on your estate. A Revocable trust provides more control over how distributions are made

An irrevocable trust cannot be revoked, so the document will continue to exist for as long as the terms of the trust dictate. This trust cannot be terminated prematurely. With careful drafting, an irrevocable trust can meet your goal (asset protection, tax planning) and allow flexibility in customization. When used properly, irrevocable trusts can be used to protect your assets from Long-Term Care.

Yes, there are several ways to protect your assets from rising long-term care costs. However, protecting your assets for your spouse or otherwise, requires a thorough analysis and a customized, strategic plan based on goals and current circumstances.

Now is a great time to start.
